We respect Ghana’s judicial process and the transparency of the court’s proceedings, which were broadcast live and in full on television and radio.

The United States also applauds the political parties for their commitment to nonviolence throughout the legal process, and we compliment civil society organizations and other key stakeholders for their efforts to strengthen democracy and promote peace.
